Cincinnati is funny... in lots of ways. We celebrated an All-Star Game with a mustached building. We welcome out-of-towners with a 3-way for dinner. Pigs can fly here. We have a great sense of humor. Let's celebrate that fact.

Jerry Seinfeld will be at the Aronoff Friday. The Cincy Brew Ha-Ha beer and comedy festival is coming up in August, and there are plenty other big names in stand-up comedy coming to town as the year closes out. Let's welcome them to town with our best LOLs... and maybe a 3-way. Or a 5-way, because beans and onions.
